for tuning in. i'm live tonight in washington, d.c. tonight's lead, driving back the gop's anti-voting drive. one of the most respected republicans is slamming his party for trying to restrict voting rights. and he is issuing this warning. >> these kinds of procedures that are being put in place to slow the process down and make it likely that fewer hispanics and african-americans might vote i think are going to backfire because these people are going to come out and do what they have to do in order to vote. and i encourage that. >> so colin powell says it's going to backfire, that people will come out and vote. well, they came out this weekend. you could see it. you could feel it. the parks department says some 178,000 people used the city's metro system, most to go to the rally and march. we came out to retrace the steps of dr. king and others, and to say we will fight for our right to vote. >> i gave of blood on that bridge in selma, alabama, for the right to vote. i am not going to stand by and let the supreme court take the right to vote away from us. you cannot stand by. you cannot sit

are suffering. it has been too long. joining me today, washington bureau chief of "the huffington post" ryan grim, vice president of demows, heather mcgee, senior fellow on the council of foreign relations ed husan and benjamin wallace wells and from cairo is nbc news foreign correspondent ayman mohyeldin. to you first, seeing as you are in the region. the complexity of what is happening in syria i don't think can be overstated in terms of how many regional actors this pulls in. tell us if you will about the reaction in the region right now as the u.s. signals we may take a more aggressive stance on syria, although what that stance is in specific we do not yet know. >> well, the reaction really has kind of fallen along the same fault lines that the conflict it itself has shaped out over the course of the last several years and that really involves both the allies and the opponents of the syrian regime. on one hand you have gulf countries, gulf arab countries like saudi arabia, united arab emirates and qatar and others, pushing for international intervention. that doesn't necessarily mean mil
. >> the way it starts. >> wearing blinds already. >> exactly. >> and in washington, senior political editor and white house correspondent for "the huffington post" sam stein. >> who is actually was going to be there, but not old enough yet. next year. sam stein. >> he got carded. >> i wouldn't make a joke of it actually. i think that was really, really disturbing. that young lady who is 20, is obviously deeply troubled, deeply disturbed, clearly has confidence issues, eating disorder and i don't think anybody should have put her on stage. that was disgusting and embarrassing. >> i've been around the track a few times, i have two older boys. >> they don't think that's attractive, miley. >> so anyway -- >> nobody does, actually. >> if i could finish what i'm going to say. >> sorry. >> the point you're going to make what is i just said. that was not attractive. that was not fun. that was not funny. that was really, really bad for anybody who's younger and impressionable and she's really messed up. >> of course she's messed up. here's the problem -- >> they should be ashamed of themselves. >> t
back on august 21st with that alleged chemical weapons attack. >> ayman, thank you. back in washington we have lieutenant colonel anthony schafer, a senior fellow and external communications director at the center for advanced studies and perry bacon, political editor at the grio. colonel, i feel like there's a number of variables in the situation. help me understand what you think are the more important dynamics and what dynamics, if any, i'm completely missing out on. i think we have to consider the impact of iraq/afghanistan, that the country is in a sort of war fatigue. i think we have to consider russia, assad's key ally, as somebody holding us back from acting. i think we have to consider the rebels are not exactly people we may want to be working with. we don't know who the next dictator will be if we support them. also, just being the world's policemen has not gotten us as far as we'd like it to. what dynamics are a part of this? >> all of the above. there's a no-win scenario. it's really nowhere to go. the idea is we've decided to do something. what should that be? this is --
vomit if, in fact, a chemical attack has actually happened. in a less formal statement, washington officials have said that we have seen all of this before. in fact, discussing this back or in the bush administration, saying that the bush administration pointed to weapons of mass distraction, which were never found in a rat, and yet that led to an occupation and 10 years plus of united states involvement in the country, so russian officials urging caution, that they do not want to see a repeat of the situation in syria, and they are basically asking the u.s. to hold off until the u.n. investigation has taken place and they know more about the situation. >> despite harsh rhetoric against this theory in government and the u.s. military waiting for a green light to attack, it appears the americans do not want an intervention. are what the latest polls. a small percentage want their president to act, but about 60% say america should not stay away -- i mean, it should stay away civil war in syria. but there is a statement that obama should do more for the rebels then just send them on,

[ applause ] >> hi, thanks for having me. i'm very excited to be here, if a bit sleepy. as he said, my new book was really an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50
to mark the 50th apversary of the civil rights march on washington led by dr. martin luther king junior. president barack obama will speak on the actual anniversary that is wednesday. while we remember how far the nation has come, we are reminded how far we still have to go even if we are in a progressive city like san francisco. kpix5 on the numbers that show inquality still exists. -- inequality still exists. >> reporter: san francisco has knocked but one trend. 60% of san francisco residents are african-american but they account for more than half of the inmates in jail. >> there is no way you can statistically justify that calculation. >> reporter: former schwarzenegger administration spoke on kpix5 sunday morning. >> i think we have to dig deeper to find answers for why we have this type of disparity in a city that is supposed to be so focused on creating equality. >> it is the struggle that continues across the nation. powell on "face the nation" on what martin luther king junior would say today. >> congratulations on all of the progress that has been made, let's keep going. the
now from washington. >> reporter: u.n. weapons inspectors will soon be at the scene of what appears to have been a chemical weapons attack outside of damascus. the syrian government has agreed to cooperate and suspend fighting in the area while it continues to deny responsibility. >> we have said it once, twice, and we offer again our assurances that we have never used there nor anywhere else in syria chemical weapons in any shape or form. >> reporter: but senior british and u.s. officials say that there is little doubt that the syrian regime carried out the attack but evidence has been degraded and destroyed. >> we cannot in the 21st century allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity, that people could be killed in this way and that there are no consequences for it. >> reporter: but russia says that there is evidence that syrian rebels were responsible and the foreign ministry says that any military response targeting its alley, the assad regime, would be a mistake and inflame the region but military action is among the options being considered by the barack oba
